Understanding and addressing emotional intelligence is the key to effectively supporting clients through life's challenges and nurturing their growth and well-being.

Yet, many clinicians lack the specialized frameworks and tools to pinpoint the underlying emotional dynamics during their therapy sessions.

This makes it easy for both therapist and client to get lost in surface-level symptoms rather than addressing the core/underlying drivers of distress and guiding clients toward lasting change.

The Three Dimensions of Emotional Intelligence course offers a transformative framework that opens doors to a deeper understanding of human emotions and interpersonal interactions.

Drawing upon the established psychological theories of Karen Horney, Wilfred Bion, and Elias Porter, participants will explore the Interpersonal Triangle model and learn how to use it as a roadmap for developing greater EI in themselves as helping professionals, their clients, and society. They'll also receive access to a free inventory to measure their own behavioral proclivities.

Through engaging lectures, participants will gain practical tools and techniques, including:

  • A powerful visual model for assessing client behavior patterns and identifying emotional intelligence strengths and challenges.
  • A step-by-step framework to guide clients toward greater self-awareness, emotional regulation, and balanced interpersonal interactions.
  • Strategies to address specific challenges related to assertiveness, empathy, conflict resolution, and mindful awareness.
    And more.

With Dr. Alibrando's extensive experience and expertise, this course offers a rich learning experience that will empower clinicians to feel confident and competent in their ability to address the complexities of human emotions and support their clients on their journey toward emotional well-being.
